Our approach to yoga teaching training is aligned perfectly with our overall brand values:

We’re practical people – we ground everything we do in reality. We question what others might assume and we deliver what’s practically required to achieve the desired results in the optimum way.

We respect the past while embracing the future – we’re humbled by the thousands of years of yoga tradition that’s come before us, but are focussed on ensuring that it stays totally relevant today and in the future.

Why HPY Yoga Teacher Training?

There are loads of teacher trainings out there and lots of them are great! So, rather than starting another great yoga teacher training course in the same mould as the others, we’ve decided to approach it in a genuinely different way. We’ll of course cover every critical element necessary to give you a solid and rich yoga foundation, but we also want to go above and beyond what you might expect.

We prepare people to become great teachers, not spiritual preachers, wellness gods/goddesses or enlightened gurus. We’ve used our experience managing tens of thousands of classes, hundreds of teachers and nearly 40 yoga businesses to build a teacher training that is built to help people teach. Here’s a few insights to our approach:

  • Learnings and expertise from outside the world

    We use learnings and expertise from outside the world of yoga to enhance our teachers’ skills. These include the following areas:

    Performance and public speaking – the world of business and theatre helps us learn about dealing with nerves and performing under pressure.

    The human body – the world of sports and medicine helps us take a practical look at what we’re made up of.

    Customer experience – retail expertise helps us understand how to build customer relationships, read body language and deal with difficult people!

    Brand and marketing – communications experts help us teach you how to market yourself and build a brand to help you achieve what you want to achieve in your teaching career.

  • We give practical experience

    We give people teaching experience while they learn. Students will be teaching from the start of the course to the end – starting small and growing as we go on. Teaching is a fast learning curve if you’re thrust into the fore – so that’s just what we intend to do.

  • Actual teaching is our focus

    We cover all bases, ensuring a strong foundation across all the key pillars of yoga tradition and history but we focus predominantly on what’s practically important to be a great teacher.

  • We embrace design & technology

    We’re a visual brand that embraces technology and design to enhance learning – we won’t be loading you up with photocopies from ancient textbooks, we’ll provide you with beautiful, easy-to-digest materials for you to refer back to for life as well as immerse yourself in during the course.

  • Free yoga!

    You can come to classes on the house – as part of the course, you’ll be getting involved in a range of classes from across the yoga spectrum but as well as that you’ve got unlimited Hotpod classes during your studies.
